The Firm’s history has been paved by its involvement in major events which have shaped Greece’s legal and regulatory framework. It has unrivalled experience in both benchmark and mainstream domestic and cross-border transactions and has acted in many of the significant and often pioneering transactions to have taken place in terms of both complexity and value over the last three decades. These include the accession of Greece to the European Community, the liberalization of the main industries, the privatization of the major State-owned operators, the establishment of global brands in Greece and foreign direct investment in the banking, capital markets, project finance and real estate sectors.
